LIVERPOOL, England (Reuters) – Liverpool and Napoli drew 1-1 at Anfield on Wednesday, leaving both sides with work to do in their final Champions League group matches to reach the last 16.

European champions Liverpool lead Group E on 10 points with Napoli a point behind and Salzburg on seven. Juergen Klopp’s side are away to Salzburg in their final game while Napoli host bottom club Genk.

Dries Mertens put Napoli ahead in the 21st minute with a sweet strike from a tight angle after running on to a through-ball from Giovanni Di Lorenzo.

Liverpool levelled when Dejan Lovren headed home from a James Milner corner in the 65th minute.
